See that my grave is kept clean

... Lord, there's one kind of favor I ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean ...
Have you ever hear a coffin sound?
Then you know another poor boy's in the ground ...

The prisoners w'all led inside
As they passed by

4. Boll weevil blues

Hey boll weevil
don't sing the blues no more
hey hey boll weevil, don't sing the blues no more
Boll weevils here
boll weevils everywhere you go ...

I'm a lone boll weevil
been out a good long time
I'm going to tell this to you
the evil boll weevil loves some vine ...

5. Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out

... When I begin to fall so low
I didn't have a friend and no place to go
But if I ever get my hand on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it till them eagle's green

Nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In my pocket not one penny
And my friends -- I haven't any

But if I ever get on my feet again
Then I'll meet my long lost friend
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out ...

26. Isn't it "until the Eagle screams?"

Makes more sense that way, anyway. It's the eagle on the silver dollar.

11. Bootlegging blues

... I went home the other night
I swore I wouldn't drink no more
Until saloons come back with bottle and bondy
in the days of long ago

But I see that will never be
so I just got drunk again
I haven't nothing so long as corn liquor lasts
and I got no money to spend ...

Felt like strolling in the air

24. bookmarked, thanks

 

I just can't listen to blues like I used to... but may feel up to it and will keep these in mind for sure.

I don't listen to much music of any kind these days. I wander around you tube for an hour once or twice a week/month.

thanks again
